Back to Shore

The seeds of this song were sown years ago. If only those who left knew what they were headed for.

BACK TO SHORE

The sky was so high when you set out from shore
The sun at your back, you were longing for more
When it started to pour
Now your hatches are battened, the ropes are all tied
The swells only grow with nowhere to hid
Can’t tell if it’s colder in or outside

Don’t know how long you can run from your past
Not sure how long you’ll last

Trying to follow your own definition of free
Now you’re sailing between where the devil would be
And the deep blue sea
Is this what you wanted out there on the brink?
Water everywhere, still the boards shrink
Not a drop you can drink

That devil will come for his pay
One of these days

And I see you sailing alone
On the sea - you are so far from home
And I need you more than you know
So you need to bring your ship back to shore

Still you won’t heed the warning
Of the red sky this morning

I’ve been sitting here all day and night
At the edge of the ocean hoping you might
Make it home all right
I know there are perils you still need to see
And so many things you’d rather not be
Under your definition of free

If drowning at sea is what you have to do
Please take me down, too

And I see you sailing alone
On the sea - you are so far from home
And I need you more than you know
So you need to bring your ship back to shore
